Poetry Friday: Hello Again, Porch Haiku, and Poetry Fest


Hello again, poetry friends. Welcome to Poetry Friday. It's been a while. Covid has taken away so much, and for many months, it also took away my desire to write anything. But, I'm determined to dip my feather back into the inkwell (or tap a few keys on the keyboard) and get back at it.

The above photo is of my front porch. I love fall! I wish the entire year could be fall! The small pumpkins and gourds came from our garden, and we purchased the flowers and sign from our local Farmer's Market. Here's my little front porch fall haiku.

Happy Fall Y'all!


This week I want to share something else writing-related that is bringing me joy. My vlog partner, Heidi Bee Roemer, is hosting Poetry Fest. What is Poetry Fest you ask? For the entire month of October, Heidi is posting one STEM/STEAM poem everyday on social media. Heidi wanted to use this opportunity to promote other authors and their newest books as well. To that end, she is pairing each of those poems with a nonfiction book on the same topic. You can follow Heidi's Poetry Fest on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/SteamPoweredPoetryVideosForKthrough8   and https://www.facebook.com/heidi.roemer.90 . You can also follow along on twitter at https://twitter.com/poetweet4 and https://twitter.com/steampoweredpo1 .

Thank you for stopping by. I've missed you all!

  4. Fun and lively haiku - just like fall! Your porch is so festive. I would love sitting in that rocker with a pumpkin spice coffee ... or a mug of hot cider.

  6. Kimberly, thank you for inviting us onto your porch for a fall treat. Your poem is a lovely pairing. Every home should fill the air with pumpkin delights and mums like your porch and poem do for me. Happy Fall to You. I am showcasing autumn image poems for my Abundant Autumn Gallery so send me a combination if you like.

  10. It's really nice to see this post from you. Oh, I feel for the folks that make their living in the children's book world. Books haven't gone away of course, but the stress of the times really does impact a willingness to be butt-in-chair working.
    Your fall porch and haiku exude joy. I'm so glad you are in your season. I have seen some of the poems that Heidi has shared on twitter. Book pairing is such a fun activity! I love doing that. Thanks for the tip....here's to big, bright marigolds!

  11. I don't know how I skipped over you and a couple of others, Kimberly, but glad I've returned to check. How nice that you're back and taking part in Heidi's fest! Happy Fall back to you! We have a very windy day today, leaves are blowing everywhere! It was fun until suddenly it got colder! Changes, changes! Have a lovely week ahead!
